University of St. Thomas’ Micro-Campus, USTMAX Center, Offers Higher Learning Opportunities to Students and Community Members
THE WOODLANDS, TX — University of St. Thomas’ Micro-Campus, USTMAX Center, held an open house, March 31. Located at the downtown square in Conroe, The Center offers Undergraduate Degree Programs, Associate Degree Programs, Graduate Degree Programs, Certificate Programs, and 'Leisure Learning', which are non-credit courses for adults offered on a wide variety of subjects.
The center’s name derives from St. Maximilian Kolbe, who is often referred to as the patron saint of innovation. The ‘MAX’ in USTMAX is a tribute to the inspiration drawn from his legacy.
WHAT IS THE USTMAX CENTER?
“The USTMAX Center serves several purposes, all with the same objective – to leverage a small footprint to expand the reach of UST’s mission and educational programs while helping Montgomery County grow. The best way to understand how UST can successfully accomplish that is by getting to know the community. The 1,500 square-foot Micro-Campus serves as a location to engage with Conroe through a variety of info-sessions and community events. These will center around existing online programs, veteran engagement events, athletics exhibitions, music events, a classroom space on site and much more. Through these events, residents get a chance to learn about and enroll in our existing online programs, and we learn what additional programs might have the greatest impact on their lives and careers. The space also serves as an outpost for alumni who live in the area and for UST fundraising events.Located on the town square in Conroe, USTMAX Center serves several purposes, all with the same objective – to leverage a small footprint to expand the reach of UST’s mission and educational programs while helping Montgomery County grow.”
